was named as the Head Strength and Conditioning Coach at Cannon School in May 2014. Coach Powell works with student-athletes in Cannon's newly constructed 3,500-square foot Andrews Strength and Conditioning Center.
Coach Powell joined Cannon after spending five years as Head Strength and Conditioning Coach at Penske Racing and seven years as Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach with the Carolina Panthers.
"Coach Powell rose to the top of the list of our national search," said Cannon's Director of Athletics Patrick Moyer. "He is clearly a strength and conditioning coach of high character, experience and competence. Equally important is his history working with championship programs, including his time with the Carolina Panthers when they reached the Super Bowl, and his tenure with one of the most elite auto racing organizations in the world at Penske Racing."
Coach Powell, a North Carolina native, holds a Bachelor of Science in Health Promotion and Kinesiology from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and an Associate of Arts in Health Fitness Technology from Brevard College.
